1/1 Gundam RX-78-2 Statue in Shizuoka Construction Progress New Images

Gundam Dot Info has several new images of the construction of Real Grade 1/1 Gundam RX-78-2 Statue in Shizuoka. We get to see how the preparation work before the head was installed looks like.

Safety prayer ceremony (安全祈願) was conducted before the installation of the head. Leading the ceremony is none other than Yoshiyuki Tomino-sensei, the creator of Gundam.

The head unit was successfully installed on June 20th.

The same prayer session can also be seen before installing the head of Gundam RX-78-2 onto its body when the statue was in Shiokaze Park last year. A safety prayer ceremony was also held before the construction started back in early April.

The completed statue is located at East Shizuoka Square (north east of JR Shizuoka Station/Naganuma, Aoi-ku, Shizuoka City). It will be on display from July 24th, 2010 till January 10th, 2011.
